Non-Revenue Sports Bruin Review and Calendar

Women's Golf

#1 UCLA, who has won five of the six tournaments they have entered this year, traveled to Orlando for the UCF Challenge and are in first place after the first round. The Bruins hold a two stroke lead over #2 Arizona St. with two rounds left on the docket.

Women's Water Polo

I think it's pretty safe to say that #3 UCLA has separated themselves from the teams ranked below them. While they haven't been able to break through versus USC or Stanford, the Bruins are begin to assert their dominance over everyone else and that continued last week. The Bruins handled #7 Cal 11-5 to open the week and were never really challenged in either game of their doubleheader Sunday as they demolished Cal Lutheran 22-3 and cruised past #12 Cal St. Northridge 9-3. UCLA (15-3) will look to continue rolling versus #10 UC Irvine at the Sunset Rec. Center this Thursday, then at Santa Clara and #8 San Jose St. this weekend.

Softball

#3 UCLA extended their winning streak to 18 last weekend, but then ended the weekend on a sour note as that winning streak came to an end. The week started with a 5-3 win over Florida International and a 2-1 win over Iowa thanks to an eighth inning walk off homer by Katie Schroeder. The UCLA win streak was then extended to 17 and 18 with a 11-0 win over Syracuse and a 12-2 win over Longwood. The winning streak would be snapped in the final game of the weekend when Long Beach St. upended the Bruins 2-1. Now 23-3, UCLA will play only one game in the next two weeks. Thats game is a home contest versus Notre Dame on Tuesday.

Women's Gymnastics

After a sizzling start the Bruins have hit a rough patch recently and dropped to #6 in the country. Last Sunday they hosted #1 Georgia and fell to the top ranked Bulldogs 97.725-196.125. Ariana Berlin led the Bruins with a career high 39.5 in the all-around despite being questionable all week with an injured knee. The Bruins were outscored by the Bulldogs on every rotation, but especially felt the hit on the balance beam where they had to count two falls. The Bruins return to action this Sunday when they welcome #12 Nebraska to Pauley Pavilion.

Women's Tennis

The #11 Bruins made a comeback in one match and cruised in another last week, but both resulted in wins. First, UCLA beat #10 USC 4-3 thanks to wins in singles matches by Ashley Joelson and Carling Seguso. Trailing 3-2, the Bruins needed both Seguso and Joelson to win their matches to beat the Trojans and that's exactly what they did as the pair both lost the opening set before winning their matches. Next, UCLA put Oregon away early as they rolled past the Ducks 6-1 to improve to 12-2 on the season and 1-0 in conference play. This week the Bruins will host #16 Arizona St. and travel to #5 Baylor.

Men's Tennis

What's better then beating a top 10 team? Beating a top 10 team who happens to be USC. The #13 Bruins defeated #8 USC 4-3 over the course of two days as rain forced a portion of the match to be postponed. The Bruins won the doubles point and three of the first four singles points to wrap up the win, which was their fifth straight over the Trojans. With a win over USC in the books, the doubles team of Haythem Abid and Nick Meister went to the Pacific Coast Doubles Championships and defeated the top seeded team from USC in the Round fo 16 en route to the tournament championship. UCLA (8-4) will play one match this week as Hawaii visits the LA Tennis Center.

Men's Volleyball

#11 UCLA snapped their four game losing streak last week, but coudn't begin a win streak of their own. UCLA began the week with a straight set victory over Grand Canyon, but couldn't complete the comeback versus #2 UC irvine and lost in five sets. The Bruins dropped the opening two sets to the Anteaters, but fought back to win the next two. In the final set though, UC Irvine took command and won 15-11 to win the match. Now 8-11 and 4-8 in MPSF play, the Bruins will be on the road at #1 Cal St. Northridge and #14 UC Santa Barbara.

Men's Track and Field

The #14 Bruins, fresh off their MPSF Indoor Championship, began their outdoor season at the Ben Brown Invitational. Only one Bruins had a regional qualifying mark as Taylor Hobson picked one up in the high jump. UCLA will wrap up their indoor this this week as they head to College Station, Texas for the NCAA Indoor Championships.

Men's Golf

The #19 Bruins enter the final round of the General Jim Hackler Invitational tied for ninth place at the TPC Myrtle Beach. Individually, Erik Flores and Gregor Main are leading the Bruins as both are tied for ninth entering the final round. The Bruins will stay in South Carolina for this weekend when they play in the Southern Highlands Invitational.

Women's Basketball

The Bruins continued to struggle on the road, but thanks to a remarkable shot by Darxia Morris, managed a split. Oregon trailed the Bruins by 13 points at halftime, but battled back and a basket with 4.6 seconds left put them ahead 69-67. That's when Morris stepped up and hit a 40 foot shot as time expired to beat the Ducks 70-69. The Bruins had another chance to hit a buzzer beater, this time versus Oregon St. and to tie the game, but that shot missed and UCLA lost to the Beavers 61-58. The Bruins finished the regular season 18-11 and in a three way tie with USC and Oregon St. for fourth in the conference at 9-9. UCLA will open the Pac 10 Tournament versus Oregon St. at Galen Center on Friday at 7:15 pm PST. The Bruins must win the tournament to make the NCAA Tournament.

Women's Track and Field

UCLA competed in the Ben Brown Invitational last weekend to open their outdoor season and three women posted regional qualifying marks. Megan Jamerson won the pole vault with a regional qualifying mark, while Tara Ross and Brittany Borman finished 1-2 in the javelin, each with regional qualifying throws. UCLA will be in Texas this weekend for the NCAA Indoor Championships.

Women's Rowing

UCLA began their 2009 spring season with a sweep over Loyola Marymount. The Bruins defeated the Lions in every race, giving them momentum heading into this weekend's contest with San Diego St.
